(FOX 9) - It looks like there will be a "White Christmas" this year, but it's coming with blizzard conditions, and a bitter cold Christmas Eve morning.
As the snow tapers off Wednesday night, strong winds will continue to whip through Minnesota, bringing a subzero wind chill for Thursday morning.
Wind gusts exceeded 40 mph for the Twin Cities metro, and more than 50 mph for surrounding areas. By morning, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is projected to have a wind chill around -25.
Due to the wind, low visibility on snow-packed, slick roads caused multiple highway closures. Minnesota State Patrol reported hundreds of crashes statewide.
